NZ Crimes: Teina Pora

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 2:25 pm on 13 February 2020

This week we are looking at the case of Teina Pora, who was wrongly imprisoned for 20 years for the rape and murder of Susan Burdett, who was brutally attacked in her Papatoetoe home in March 1992.

Investigative journalist Eugene Bingham and his colleague Paula Penfold started investigating Teina Pora's case in 2012. Eugene joins Jesse to us through the case.
